After an ACL surgery, you are at greater risk of tearing your ACL again.

If you have torn your ACL once, research shows that you have a higher chance of tearing it again. This is true for people who have had surgery to repair their ACL, as well as for people on the non-surgical side. What this means is that prevention becomes incredibly important. All of the things you are doing for strengthening, balance, coordination and especially sport and activity-specific drills like running, pivoting, cutting, or changing direction become absolutely crucial in order to prevent another ACL tear.

Watch the video below, where Nirtal Shah, Physical Therapist and CEO of Curovate, answers the question "If I tear my ACL am I at a greater risk of tearing it in the future?"
